Mammoet heavy lifting switches to Shell gas-to-liquid fuel 29 February 2016

Netherlands-based Mammoet – thought to be the world’s largest heavy lifting and transport services provider – is moving over to cleaner-burning Shell gas-to-liquid (GTL) fuel for its entire fleet of 50 trucks and 200 cranes.

Sander Splinter, managing director of Mammoet Europe, says the change will reduce emissions, so helping to improve local air quality, as well as cutting noise levels.

“Many of our clients are conscious of the need for environmental improvement and we think choosing Shell GTL fuel will help us to make a contribution by giving them a competitive edge,” states Splinter.

“The rollout of Shell GTL fuel underscores our ambition to be the most competitive and innovative energy company,” comments Marjan van Loon, president director for Shell Netherlands.

“We are proud it will now also be used in the heavy-lifting sector and contribute to Mammoet’s plans to reduce emissions,” he continues.

“As the market develops, we will continue to invest in GTL infrastructure for customers demanding a fuel that can help reduce local emissions in conventional diesel vehicles.”
